A charming shaggy girl named Phoebe Brasuel does not know what a comb is. Because of the rarest genetic deviation, she belongs to a small category of people whose hair is so different from normal that it is easier to leave them alone than to try to put them in order somehow. The girl, and she is still 21 months old, does not realize her uniqueness yet, but her mother has a difficult time — there will always be a pest who will reproach that she does not follow her daughter, completely not understanding the essence of what is happening.
Phoebe’s mom says that she has already tried several dozen different remedies in an attempt to gently and painlessly bring her daughter’s hair into at least some semblance of order. To no avail. The girl wakes up and everything stands on end on her head, which, although it looks charming, is still somewhat discouraging. Now she is small and does not attach any importance to this, but what will happen when the eternal girlish craving for beauty overcomes? It’s one thing to be like a cartoon character in childhood and quite another to live with it all your life.
For the first time, mom realized that something was wrong with her daughter’s hair when she was three months old. At the same time, it turned out that Phoebe had the same strange and unpleasant «uncombed hair syndrome». Instead of a round shape, her hairs are triangular, they have a jagged surface and are strongly twisted — combing this is like wading through a dense forest thicket. Forceful methods just lead to terrible pain, so it’s easiest to do as Phoebe’s mom realized. She hooks her daughter with a bow or a hairpin and everyone thinks that this is the author’s hairstyle.
By the way, Albert Einstein, who is known for his lush hair, had a similar syndrome. In total, according to statistics, there are about a hundred people in the world with a similar effect. But this information is contradictory, because it is not really known how many people simply consider their hair «terrible» and do not even suspect what the catch is. It is painfully difficult to distinguish, without knowing the essence, simply not combed hair from those that cannot be combed without physical suffering.
It is unrealistic to cure or eliminate this syndrome, moreover, doctors are not sure at all that it is worth doing. It is likely that with age, Phoebe’s hair will change and become more «compliant». Well, if not, it’s okay. The great scientist is an example of this.
